Portland, OR


I'm back from Portland and attempting to settle into my daily routine. James and I had a wonderful trip--the show looked great (thanks to Laura Valenti and Chris Bennett of Newspace), opening night was fun, and I actually liked giving an artist talk, go figure. I also enjoyed hearing Bryan Wolf talk about his work and approach to photographing his own children. He doesn't have a large online presence but I can assure you that his images are beautiful and haunting; I'll be putting up some snapshots I took of his pictures on the wall when I have a chance--for now I just wanted to get a post up quickly before more time passed. It was also fantastic to get the chance to hang out with the gorgeous Melanie Flood and her husband Matt (they moved out West a few months ago from Brooklyn), and to meet Shawn Records, fellow Washington University grad Lauren Henkin, and Jake Stangel at the opening (am I forgetting anyone? If so, apologies). Thanks to everyone who came to support the show. More in a moment...

Elizabeth, it was so lovely to have you in our home west coast style! I can't remember the last time we laughed so hard during a dinner. Can't wait to see you both again.

Mel: Do what?!

You guys are hilarious--we're getting tons of mileage out of that one...Can't wait to see you again too.
